David Brooks may well be currently sidelined with an ankle injury that will make him unavailable for selection for over a month, but that hasn’t kept him out of the headlines.
His form since his £11.5million move from Sheffield United has made him a contender for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
Dancing to the beat of Brooksy! ????

The 21-year-old has scored 6 goals and claimed 4 assists from his first 22 appearances in the Premier League and that has raised interest in the Wales International from the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
According to British tabloid newspaper The Mirror it could be Tottenham Hotspur who make the first move.
Tottenham are currently putting the finishing touches to their delayed new stadium. Coincidentally, during this period Tottenham have become the first club in Premier League history to not sign a player in two consecutive transfer windows.
However according to this report, that will change in the summer as “Spurs are preparing a £50million summer bid for Bournemouth midfield sensation David Brooks, to head off interest from other clubs including Manchester United.”
The report added…
“(Manchester) United have checked regularly on the 21-year-old and could make their own summer bid.
When asked about the speculation, AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo…
“David is a massive part of what we are doing here.
“We have a big end to the season from our perspective.
“We need everyone focused on that and nothing else.”
